Mainly, for the -V, at least in new features:
-(UFL) Lane Departure Warning. Standard on STS-V. Included and only available in (Y53) Driver Awareness Package on STS.
-(UFT) Side Blind Zone Alert. Standard on STS-V. Included and only available in (Y53) Driver Awareness Package on STS.
-New design for (NR7) Heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel with Kinetic aluminum trim. STS-V only.
-(UV6) Head-Up Display now standard on STS-V.
Among other things I just didn't take the time to break down, but you can peruse through and read.
I have mixed feelings about the HUD. I drove a 1SG that had it and I loved it! The problem was that GM told me that it was impossible to be fitted on the STS-V because of the supercharger. I would have waited a couple years to purchase mine if I had known this was coming so soon.
?? trans - 6L80 upgrades??? Re: Official 2008 Changes
I have read through the 2008 list of changes here and elsewhere –
and I am surprised to see nothing about any upgrades to the MX0 \ 6L80’s shift behavior.
I currently drive a 2007 Corvette Coupe. On the 2008 Order Guide site GM \ Chevy states:
“Improved paddle shift automatic with quicker shift on (MX0) automatic transmission”.
Has anyone seen or heard anything about similar improvements
for the 2008 STS-v?
Since it uses a version of the same 6L80,
I’d hope that there would be comparable improvements in the Caddy Flagship. . . ???
